Yuyudo Publisher - In the early 20th century, the Yuyudo publishing house had already distinguished themselves as one of the finest publishers in Japan. They adhered to the same exacting standards of 19th century publishers while some of their publishing colleagues took shortcuts. In the 1950's, as interest Edo era woodblock prints was reigniting, Yuyudo embarked upon a project to produce reprints by the great masters from the Golden Age of Ukiyo-e.

Comments - Terrific design of a beauty hurrying through the street, carrying an umbrella before her, leaning slightly into the wind. The breeze blows the hem of her dotted kimono bordered with leaves, revealing a glimpse of red under robe. Her hair is elegantly arrange with a large comb and several decorative hairpins, and she has a packet of tissues tucked in the front of her kimono. The mirror-shaped inset at left shows platters of food and a small black lacquer pail. A charming image with wonderful color and fine detail.
